Daedalus Quartet: Migration through Music
The Daedalus Quartet, Penn’s quartet-in-residence, explores migration through music, illustrating how centuries of cultural cross-pollination has enriched our artistic and spiritual life. Music truly has no borders, unifying through the universality of the human experience. In this performance, which will include selected literary readings voiced by KWH community members, the quartet will perform works that exhibit the richness and complexity of this cultural convergence, including the Philadelphia premiere of a new work by Gabriel Bolanos Chamorro and a world premiere by Penn graduate student composer Ania Vu.
